ATLANTA, GA: Poor Rusty is really just not feeling well. 🤒 He has a bad case of mange (treatable), a raging yeast infection (treatable), and all the while enduring it at the shelter. Rusty was posted on SSD two days ago with the hopes that someone would immediately come for him straight away. Unfortunately, that has not happened. He had NO local adoption interest. Rusty really needs some TLC, and he needs it now. PLEASE SHARE! (Rusty's recovery will be fully sponsored thanks to the late Sue, a senior pit bull who recently passed away. Her adopters raised money in Sue's name to help another senior dog from her shelter have a chance to get out, just like Sue did.) @fultonanimalservices
wrote, "Rusty is 9 years old, 80 pounds and heartworm negative. This poor old guy was picked up as a stray. He's in awful shape. He is missing most of his hair, skin covered with open weeping and bloody sores, and incessant itching. He has demodex mange and a raging yeast infection. He's absolutely miserable right now.
Rusty is kenneled alone but has paid no attention to other dogs that we've tried to introduce him to. When Rusty is outside of his run, all he can do is scratch. His skin is full of scabs and puss that has hardened. He bleeds because he can’t stop itching.
He is incredibly sweet and he’s just looking for someone to love him and bring him back to health. He was very patient when getting a bath and he is a great dog." To adopt or rescue Rusty, please email staff member Amy at amcilwain@fultonanimalservices
